Manage episode 359257441 series 2409625
It has been estimated that fertilizers contribute to about half of global food production. However, these same fertilizers can be responsible for green house gas emmisions. How can we strike a balance between the benefits of fertilizer use in food production and the greenhouse gas emissions attributed to fertilizers?
In this episode, Dr. Rob Mikkelsen helps us explore the impact of fertilizers on the environment, specifically their contribution to Scope 3 greenhouse gas emissions. We will discuss the importance of reducing these emissions through sustainable agriculture practices to mitigate climate change and ensure a healthy planet for future generations. Join us as we delve into the challenges and opportunities of balancing crop nutrition with environmental sustainability.
